Fidesz group leader says it may very well be the highest turnout ever

“Hungarian democracy is strong, this is what the high turnout signals. We thank all those who have voted, this way the next government will have strong legitimacy,” Gergely Gulyás, Fidesz group leader, said

Fidesz group leader Gergely Gulyás has thanked Hungary for the especially high turnout in the 2018 general election.

“Hungarian democracy is strong, this is what the high turnout signals. We thank all those who have voted, this way the next government can have strong legitimacy,” Gergely Gulyás, Fidesz group leader, said.

Today, Hungary has seen some of the highest voter turnouts in its democratic history. By 18:30, 30 minutes before polls officially close across the country, more than two-thirds of eligible voters have cast their ballots. The final turnout is projected to reach 70 percent.

“It may very well be the highest turnout ever. The parliament of Hungary will then be especially strong,” Gulyás added. 

"This is a common success for Hungarian democracy," Gulyás concluded.

He said that the ruling party’s goal is to secure an absolute majority, “but anything on top of that is an honor,” he said.
